Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review: Epic phone, epic price

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Review: Epic phone, epic price

Value is subjective, and little illustrates that quite so well as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Long the largest physically of the company's smartphones, now the Note family pushes Samsung into a new price bracket, too: like Apple's iPhone X, you're looking at a $1,000 membership fee if you want access to the Note 9's exclusive club. In return, though, you're getting one of the most powerful, full-featured, and at times frustrating Android smartphones around.

Tesmo Universe Book Review

Tesmo Universe Book Review

The Tesmo Universe Book is one of the strangest devices I've ever reviewed here with SlashGear. It's one of the strangest devices I've ever come in contact with, come to think of it. Not because it's particularly strange in its abilities, but because of the unique nature in which it's presented.

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn’t been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that’s the product of a team up between Verizon, Motorola, and Qualcomm. The problem, and what leaves me scratching my head, is that the 5G mod won’t be available until sometime next year, while the Moto Z3 is launching this month as a Verizon exclusive.

Lensball Review : Something Completely Different

Lensball Review : Something Completely Different

There are two versions of the Lensball. One's called the Lensball Pocket - that's 60mm and weighs 250gr (0.55 pounds). The Lensball Pro is 80mm and weighs 650gr (1.45 pounds). Both versions come in a simple padded box and both come with a soft material pouch. I would not recommend dropping either one of these pieces of glass, with or without the pouch, as we're not dealing with the least fragile piece of equipment here, regardless of guarantees of ruggedness.

Lenovo Smart Display Review: Show & Tell for the Google Assistant

Lenovo's Smart Display brings show & tell to the Google Assistant, adding a touchscreen to the smart speaker and taking on Amazon's Echo Show in the process. First of a series of display-enabled Assistant devices to make it to shelves, Lenovo's gadget aims to win a spot on your kitchen counter or your nightstand with both voice and touch control, as well as the promise of better integration with your smartphone than Alexa can provide.

TRIWA x Humanium Metal Hu39 watch Review

TRIWA x Humanium Metal Hu39 watch Review

The Hu39 is a watch made by TRIWA with the melted metals of illegal firearms: Humanium Metal. It's a rare opportunity to behold a piece of hardware in which the materials are more meaningful in their delivery than the product which they create. Here the medium is the message, and the message is that firearms are more valuable (and far less dangerous) to humanity melted-down than they are active. Plus the watch looks real nice, too.

Octopath Traveler review: A solid throwback to the JRPG greats

Octopath Traveler review: A solid throwback to the JRPG greats

After more than a year of waiting, Octopath Traveler has finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch, and boy are JRPG fans excited. One look at its aesthetic is all you need to begin drawing comparisons to the many excellent JRPGs from the 1990s, like Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy VI, and Chrono Trigger. It’s safe to say that hype among the folks who love this genre was incredibly high in the lead up to release, but now that it’s here, does Octopath Traveler live up to the hype? Is it the 16-bit throwback we’ve all been waiting for?

The 2018 Range Rover Supercharged LWB is SUV royalty

The 2018 Range Rover Supercharged LWB is SUV royalty

The 2018 Range Rover LWB isn’t bulletproof, but you certainly feel that way from behind the wheel. LWB here stands for Long Wheelbase, and means more length added to what’s already the largest model in Range Rover’s line-up. Despite that, it’s an unexpected note of restraint in a sea of vast luxury trucks.

Honor 10 Review: Peacock strut with decent guts

Honor 10 Review: Peacock strut with decent guts

The Honor 10 is one of this year's best phones that was not officially planned for release inside the United States. But don't let that silly bit of business stop you. This smartphone is a work of art - not necessarily as a traditional does-everything handset, but in its unique set of special features and external casing.

Nokia 3.1 Review: Best at Basics

Nokia 3.1 Review: Best at Basics

If you need a new inexpensive smartphone without superfluous bells and whistles, take a peek at the Nokia 3.1. This month we had the Nokia 3.1 in-pocket for review and came away suitably impressed. This phone costs $159, runs Android One, and has a guarantee for two years of OS updates and three years of monthly security patches. It's exactly what the most baseline Android smartphone should be - at well below the price one might expect.

Sonos Beam Review: AirPlay 2, Alexa, and TV harmony

Sonos Beam Review: AirPlay 2, Alexa, and TV harmony

Sonos' vision of entertainment has always been more open house than invite-only, and with Amazon Alexa, Apple AirPlay 2, and the Google Assistant on the horizon, the new Sonos Beam epitomizes that ethos more than ever. The $399 speakerbar isn't just a more affordable version of the company's Playbar and Playbase models, but the smart guts of the Sonos One packed into a louder, TV-friendly enclosure. Question is, does the Beam's house party go without a hitch, or are all these assistants bad neighbors?
